Artist and producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has signed a new four-year overall deal with Starz. Under the agreement, it includes a three-series commitment, the addition of a dedicated development executive, and a discretionary fund for use in developing G-Unit projects. Jackson will also continue to develop new scripted and unscripted projects exclusively for the premium service through his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc.
Sources with knowledge of the agreement tell Variety that, in full success and combination with Jackson’s current series and development, it could prove to be worth as much as $150 million — making it the latest in a series of eye-popping talent deals reshaping the economics of the television business. A Starz spokesperson declined to comment on the deal’s value.
